Your CGPA of 7.8 is basically above 3.0 in the scope of 1-4 (GPA scaling). And it may not seem so but it's more than enough. Most universities require around a 3.0 GPA for MS programs. Now I can see that civil engineering is a STEM course and it may need a little extra. But even so, I’m sure you are all set with a 3.0 above GPA.

For the best options, I have some good names. I have most recently gone through the top universities in the USA that do not require a GRE score. And out of those, these are the best ones for a civil engineering master:

Iowa State University
George Mason University
California State University Sacramento (SCU)
University of Washington
University of Minnesota

Iowa and George Mason are both excellent options. I would suggest going for them if you want core engineering experience. Their civil engineering courses are the best among what they offer. Especially Iowa State University, which is a leading university in the USA. Plus the university is most famous for its engineering college. George Mason is more leaned toward core components and tech. Their civil engineering program is involved with big tech factors like robotics, CS, data analytics etc.

I would suggest SCU if you want a more industrial aspect. Like to work with companies and development. SCU civil engineering program is designed to provide this excitingly to the students. The University of Minnesota is a research-intensive university. But both, the University of Minnesota and the University of Washington are fit for an international experience. 

Let me know if this helped and if you want any more information.
